2021 Annual Conference and AGM
Held on 4 – 5 October 2021
Bringing together key influencers from across the sector to explore how the sector is re-emerging and setting priorities for the future, our conference provides a great opportunity to network, debate current and future issues for the sector, and contribute to AFM’s planning.
In 2021, we were delighted to see, in person, so many friends and colleagues from across the sector, and would like to extend our sincere thanks to all our speakers, exhibitors and sponsors for their valued contributions.
